Is Tablo app faster with new Apple TV 4K compared with Apple TV 4?


#1

Does the tablo app perform any faster with Apple TV 4K compared to the Apple TV 4? Guide data, recordings, and channels are a little slow to load.

Apple TV 4K hardware improvements:

  • A10X Fusion chip
  • supports Gigabit Ethernet
  • better Wi-Fi

@showtz - We’ve done some major performance improvements with the latest firmware and apps. Are you running the latest?

I do have the newer Apple TV at my desk and find it quite snappy. Unfortunately I can’t really compare it to the previous gen.

I just installed the latest firmware I’ll get the new ATV 4K and time the difference.

I’m curious for a follow up here. Any differences to report?

It appears to be about 1.5 seconds faster loading channels. I did several tests and timed 6.5second load times with new Apple TV 4K connected to wired gigabit and over 8 seconds with older model Apple TV 4. Overall it seems faster with all apps probably due to the hardware updates.
